One of my Facebook friends posted this photo on Facebook with the caption: “Even better yet the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way it treats its most vulnerable of its people including the unborn and the elderly and the infirmed regardless of race and ethnicity or whatever else….”
The bottom picture is of Hitler and deers. One of the comment on the photo was “Hitler loved animals. He said on more than a few occasions that he prefered his dog to most human company. He was also a vegetarian, so go figure.”
For starters. No he wasn’t. He just said that to get people to like him. He didn’t eat that much meat for health reasons but he did eat it on occasion. So not truly a vegetarian.
But why can’t the greatness of the nation be judged by the way the nation treats any being, including the unborn, elderly, handicapped and animals. I don’t eat animals or animal products for ethical reasons but this doesn’t mean that I am automatically going to care about animals and animals only.
Why can’t someone be against animal abuse and be against abortion and mistreating the elderly and handicapped? Why can’t someone protest the mistreatment of every being because every being was created by God. Yes people are more important and if I had to choose from saving an animal and saving a human the human wins. But we don’t have to choose one over the other. We can choose both.
